Fall Fishing
Walleyes are biting this week in 15’-26’ of water using jigs tipped with a minnow around points and areas with a current.  Little Oak island, Soldier’s Point, Massacre Island and Deep Water Bay have all produced some nice walleyes. Water temperature is currently 60 degrees.

Muskies & Northern Pike
September and October are some great months for active muskie and pike fishing on Lake of the Woods. Trolling using spinner jerk baits around points and areas with current have been working best.

Crappies are biting
The cooler the water gets the better the bite gets! Areas with structure are the key. Jigging using pink, gold and orange colors tipped with a minnow works best. Areas around Falcon Island have been great.

Winter is just around the corner time to get your reservations in!
It won’t be long and the bombardiers will be running the ice, the fish houses will be placed and we will be reeling in walleyes through the ice.
